Wines of South Africa
Thursday, November 11 from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm
South Africa is one of the great wine-growing countries. Their wine styles take the best of France and Australia and fuse them into something unique and wonderful. This is a country that produces stellar Cabernet Sauvignon, age-worthy Syrah, and top-flight Pinot Noir.
If you haven’t been exposed to these wines –or want to learn more about the country – you owe it to yourself to come and experience the best-kept secrets in the wine world: South African wine.
Attending this Wine Class as an Online Student?
This class is offered as an in-person class (Premium and Discount Tickets) or a virtual wine tasting (Online Tickets). We will send you a Zoom link with your ticket. Please keep that email! You can also come back to this page, and your zoom link will show here at the start of class.
Buying Wines for Online Students
We recommend picking up wines via wine.com or wine-searcher.com. The wine list is included on this page. You don’t need to have the exact wines on the list. It’s unlikely you will be able to find all the wines we use: we have a vast wine cellar, and many of the wines we taste in class are unavailable via retail channels. Instead, we recommend focusing on the varietals and regions we are using, not the vintage or producer. Please note that we cannot ship or sell wines. If you need assistance in purchasing wines, we offer a paid sommelier consulting service.
